Baked Egg Patties for Sandwiches or Freezing

by Alyona's Cooking

Have you ever wondered how to make those perfectly round Egg Patties for breakfast sandwiches that some fast food places carry, such as Dunkin Donuts? Well this cooking technique not only makes the perfect size Baked Egg Patties for sandwiches, but is freezable and super easy to make. 

I’m totally loving this way of making sandwich eggs, as I can now achieve those restaurant style egg patties, I’ve been wanting to make. It’s all done in an english muffin tin and is a perfect way to make a batch of hot eggs, all at one time. They turn out super moist as they are baked in some water and can be made ahead for freezer friendly breakfast sandwiches (if they are not eaten by then.) After trying this cooking method, you may just not want to fry eggs anymore, it’s really that easy!

6. Then, season each egg with salt & pepper to taste and bake in the preheated oven for 10 minutes.

7. Finally, once eggs are baked run a spatula under each egg and remove. Eggs should pop right out.

When reheated they were rubbery. I neglected to add water while initially baking. Could this be the cause?

Hi Catherine, it sounds like they may have been over baked. I think the water works as a moistening agent kind of like milk with scramble eggs so I wouldn’t omit that. Try baking for a couple minutes less or just until yolks set and add some liquid to moisten the egg patty.

After baking the eggs do I let them cool then can I put them in a freezer bag n freeze them then microwave them when I want one??

After cooling try to flash freeze on a big tray covered with parchment paper then stack into a zip-loc bag and freeze. To eat just microwave in 30 second intervals to see where you like it.

I was buying frozen scrambled egg patties at Walmart but they stopped carrying them. I bet this would work for making patties that way too.

You could but it would probably be easier to bake a portion of scrambled eggs in one large pan instead and then just cutting it into circles because pouring scrambled eggs into the limited mold space can not only take multiple batches to bake but can get messy as scrambled eggs can be quite slimy to work with, especially dividing into portions–if that makes sense…

How do you then warm them up for reheating?

You can layer as many egg patties that you need into a bowl and add 2 tbsp of water for each egg. Cover with paper towel or plastic wrap and microwave until warm (30-sec -1 min depending on how many eggs you heat up.)
